Leica’s famous for their limited edition runs of cameras. This time, it’s to celebrate the exhibition of photographs from James Bond films spanning more than 60 years since the character’s on-screen debut in 1962. The exhibition, titled “Photographs from the James Bond Archive”, is thanks to film producer Michael G Wilson, who has opened up EON’s archive of photographs shot during filming of the movies.
To go along with the exhibition, Leica has released a limited special Leica D-Lux 7 007 Edition camera. It features the familiar bond “gun barrel” design on the lens cap and is emblazoned with the 007 logo on top. The run is limited to only 1,962 units worldwide – matching the year of the first movie release – in a specially designed presentation box.
